Great picture.


I have had this for a couple of weeks now and I have no issues. I am really happy with it. The small remote can control everything at a basic level and there is another remote for fine tuning. The sound quality is very good also.

Great TV


Well packaged and excellent delivery. Easy to set up. Excellent quality HD picture. Would recommend this SMART TV, a little pricey but well worth it. Amazon Prime has so much choice.
